As summer approaches,our thoughts turn to sun, sand and the beach. But, our recent author event with Ted Danson (yes, that Ted Danson of “Cheers”, “Becker” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and his first book “Oceana” will make us think about the the state of the oceans, and the efforts necessary to preserve them. For the past 25 years, Ted Danson’s passion has been the preservation of the oceans, highlighting the problems of overfishing, acidification, destruction of habitats that keep the cycle going. But, he is optimistic, his message is hopeful and he offers helpful suggestions on how and what we can do to bring attention to this issue.
Lisa Jackson, Administrator of the EPA, welcomed Ted to a standing room only crowd. He claimed to be a little intimidated by all the experts in the room, but he held his own and was warmly received. It was a special treat for us to meet him.
